Travel Tips for Killorglin

Cutting Peat

by grandmaR

When we were in Bunratty, most of the houses had peat fires. The school teacher told us that peat is called 'turf' when cut

The cutting of peat for fuel began in the 17th century and continued at an increasing rate until the mid 20th century. Originally, most of this was cut by hand, and laid in the sun to dry before being burned. At the time of the famine, peat (called 'turf' when cut) was often the only source of fuel available.

Now, machines are used to cut peat from the bog.

Our guide pointed out this area where peat had been harvested from the bog.

"Killorglin"

Cousins Linda and Roni's family came from Killorglin, County Kerry.
They were the Moriartys and many shop signs reveal that the Moriartys are still here. Linda looked into the records at the town hall and we looked up Moriarty in the phone book whilst in Shelagh O'Neill's Pub. Shelagh O'Neill's is the 4th building down the street in this pic. It is painted Red.

"Puck Fair"

Description:
Annual fair and merrymaking associated with Puck, a large white male goat with ribbons tied to his horns. The Puck is elevated to a high pedestal on "Gathering Day" and presides over the merrymaking for the 3 day festival until "Scattering Day", when it's lowered from it's perch. Aug 10 - 12.
